Tourists avoid it, as it is a bit spooky the Hollywood Tower the 1929 Cramer and Wise faux French Normandy apartment house. George Raft owned an interest in the building and lived here for a time, but everyone knows it's haunted by the ghosts of sweet young things who came out here to make it big, and didn't, and died. There are vacancies, by the way.

The nearby and equally spooky Castle Argyle (perhaps haunted by the ghosts of the famous Hollywood Argyles)
